Sandra Dahan – Dog Training

Group classes, daycare – morning until night –  drop off and pick up.
Boarding for vacationers.

My name is Sandra and as a trainer and behaviorist i would like to share my knowledge with you in training and behavioral modification.

I remember when my parents many years ago brought home this adorable dog, i was very young and fascinated and spend endless hours playing with him. The amount of time i spend was unbelievable, i was hooked.

Over many years i realized how much love i have towards all animals and how it had grown and multiplied to the point i wanted to be in that field.
Through my life i always owned a dog, and one day I met a special two and a half month old rescued pit bull mix. Her name was cricket and she had a lot of attitude even at that very young age. She was very dominant, and especially aggressive when she didn’t get her way. I could not control my own dog, and I did not want to give up, so I called a trainer who helped me to the best he could. But she needed more attention and more professional training.

Then I met this incredible master dog trainer, behaviorist Harry Kalajian. He help me during the classes and showed me how to be a leader. I started to see a difference and then he introduced me to different techniques that worked amazingly. His approach and with a lot of patience my dog and I begun to be happy and balanced. This experience opened my heart and wanted to make a difference to others as Harry Kalajian did with me.

I decided to become one of his students and took his course to become a professional trainer at the Montreal Dog Trainers Network. To teach people & their dogs one must understand behavior of their dog and to be patient, calm and persistent. You could have the perfect dog, my goal is to help people and their pets have the best relationship with their dog. I have been taught and followed all phases under Harry Kalajian, master dog trainer/ behaviorist of the Montreal Dog Trainers Network

I want to thank my dad & mom (even though she has passed away years ago i know she has been with me ever since) and my brother and of course my teacher Harry who have all believed in me. I have lots of passion and heart to help those who are willing to put the time and patience to achieve their goals.

Why use a professional pet sitter?
  • Pets are happier & healthier in their own home environment.
  • Avoid  stress for your pet of being left in an unfamiliar place.
  • Avoid the hassles of transporting your pet to and from a kennel.
  • No exposure to other animals, sickness or parasites.
  • Relatives, friends or neighbors will not be inconvenienced by your pet and the additional responsibilities.
  • Gives you peace of mind, knowing that a professional is caring for  your pet,  and your house will be looked after while you’re away.

Our goal is to provide your pet with the same loving care, exercise and playtime that he/she is accustomed to under your own care. We try to continue the routine you have established, this may mean walks in the neighborhood, or off-leash exercise one-on-one etc… By having your pet remain in its familiar environment, separation stress is reduced. Your pet will be calmer, better cared for, and tends to be less destructive. In addition, your home is more secure when someone visits twice a day.
